The urgency and scale of the need for decarbonised transport calls for fundamental shifts across many aspects of the system. Scania is working with a range of public and private sector stakeholders who share our determination to make changes that will have a lasting impact on not just the transport system, but society as a whole.
Decarbonising the heavy transport sector is possible, but to succeed we need to see technological and systematic change on a scale and at a speed that society has never experienced before. This is not something that can be done by a single actor. To make this happen, politicians, private enterprises and public bodies all have to work together.
Smart, strategic partnerships offer a wider level of expertise, shared insights, diverse ideas and approaches to problem solving and increased resources for achieving solutions. They provide a 360-degree perspective for the complex issues that have to be faced.
Scania recognises this and, to take a leading role in the shift towards a sustainable transport system, it has initiated several strategic cooperations with universities, customers and other technology companies. Many of those in our partner ecosystem come from outside traditional industry boundaries. In general our partnerships take two broad forms: those that seek to test, pilot or accelerate commercialisation of new technological or business model based solutions, and those that seek to address larger scale global transport system challenges.
